Christmas Chochin Lanterns At Kanayama Station


These beautiful Christmas lanterns decorate the shopping plaza at Kanayama Station near the performance stage and the branch of Seijo Ishii.

Produced by a local Nagoya chochin (paper lantern) firm in Nagoya, the design of the lanterns is based on a traditional Finnish look in the shape of a Christmas Tree.

The lanterns are so large they were made in a separate warehouse and then brought to the company's store to be painted.

One of the Christmas Tree lanterns has been purchased by the Finnish Embassy in Tokyo and another is on display inside Nagoya Shiyakusho (City Hall).
